I don't know if I could consider an LX to be small and sleek....well compared to a Surge, I suppose it is.
I respect poster's view on Surefire's but I would take one E2 over five Legend LX's and it is the perfect size for a briefcase. A lot of people change their mind on Surefire's once they see or own one.
Thanks all for the opinions--I'll let you know what I think when the LX arrives.
To recap. I have the Inova X5 as an edc pocket light. The E2E appears only a bit brighter than the Lambda Illuminator (30% or so on Craig's site) so while interesting, it's not the gain I was looking for. The Illuminator is within arms reach (as is a minimag at least some of the time).
I was looking for something much brighter than the Illuminator, but still smallish. I think the LX was the best choice--thanks for the general reinformcement.
I'd like an LED light as bright as the LX but that will have to wait, I fear.
